The investment fraud lawyers at Meyer Wilson are currently investigating a case regarding former stockbroker John C. Hanson.
John Charles Hanson (CRD# 2420584) was barred from associating with any FINRA member firm after FINRA found that he had violated FINRA Rule 8201 and FINRA Rule 2010, which involved "refusing to respond to FINRA requests for information, documents, and testimony in connection with an investigation involving allegations that Hanson misappropriated customers' funds."
Hanson was being investigated for his potential role in a $300,000 Ponzi scheme. Registered brokers are required to comply with all FINRA investigations by providing necessary information and documentation, which Hanson failed to do.
FINRA also accused Hanson of breaking Rule 2010, which holds all brokers to a high standard of commercial honor, and upholding just and fair trade principles.
Prior to being disbarred, Hanson was a registered broker with Northwestern Mutual Investment Services, LLC in Spokane, Washington from September 2004 until September 2014.
Our attorneys are currently investigating Hanson's misappropriation claims. Hanson's clients who suffered financial losses due to this alleged misappropriation of investment funds may be able to recover their losses.
